The pattern of a traditional nattrøjer features eight-pointed stars centered in diamonds formed by intersecting oblique lines. In this project, cabled eight-pointed stars are centered in narrow hexagons created by truncating the sides of diamonds; the trimming of the sides of the diamonds was necessitated by the limited circumference of the sock. The project is knitted in white yarn, the yarn color that appears in most Danish paintings showcasing sock knitting.
